Bird Man Necklace
This vintage fetish necklace has a shaman wearing a bird headpiece as the centerpiece, surrounded by eagles interspersed with melon beads and occasional turquoise nuggets.
The bird man is made of two pieces of bone, joined before it was carved. The eagles also appear to be made from bone. The necklace is finished with sterling silver tips.
Necklace is 35″; bird man is 2 5/8 in. high x 7/8 in. wide x 1/2 in. deep.
Origin of the necklace is a New Mexico Pueblo, possibly Zuni or Santo Domingo.
